I have just taken part in a new swap.  The idea was that my partner sent me a pack of "goodies" and I had to make something out of them and send it back to her.  Here is what my swap partner sent me.
I decided that I wanted to something a bit different from just a canvas to hang on the wall so this is what I came up with.

This is the front of the piece.  It is attached to the canvas with gold ball chains and it lifts up.

This is the inside of the piece.  I added tags to put in the top pocket and made a small journal to fit inside the niche.

Here is one of the tags:

Here is the front and back of the little journal:

Here is the inside of the journal:

And finally here is the bottom of the canvas.  I used game pieces and upholstery nails to make feet.

I had a great time making this piece. I used every bit of the things that my swap partner sent me and obviously added some of my own bits and pieces.  It was a great challenge.
